eunice kennedy shriver died today.
of course, i didn’t know eunice – but anyone who grows up a middle child of 4 brothers and 4 sisters and emerges to accomplish all that she did has to be pretty wonderful.
according to cnn, “Shriver’s husband, R. Sargent Shriver, and her five children and their spouses and all of her 19 grandchildren were with her when she died”. i believe that says it all.
“She was the light of our lives, a mother, wife, grandmother, sister and aunt
who taught us by example and with passion what it means to live a faith-driven
life of love and service to others”
– the Shriver family
